The Holy Ground opened on Saturday April 4th 1965 at 7.45pm  at the Cambridge Inn. Harvey Andrews attended and kindly allowed me to photograph a leaflet for that night (see below). An ad was found in the Broadside 69 broadsheet where it was running at the Newton Club in 1969, but it is not known when it moved there. The Holy Ground then went the Limelight Club, opening on May 3rd 1969, however the next ad that was found was for August 7th 1971, when the club was at the Shakespeare. The final venue of the club was the Star Social Club, where they moved in February 1972.
